Yesterday artist Jay Rolfe featured the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Brancusi sculpture "The Kiss" as his photo of the day. In the background were the bottom portions of 2 versions of "Bird In Space" by Brancusi. Today's photos of the day are both complete sculptures. This is the link to the Philadelphia Museum of Art's website for the 1924 bronze "Bird In Space." http://www.philamuseum.org/collections/permanent/51057.html Here is the link to the Philadelphia Museum of Art's 1923-24 yellow marble "Bird In Space (Yellow Bird)." http://www.philamuseum.org/collections/permanent/51114.html I find these sculptures, like "The Kiss," beautiful and elegant.
For those of you nearer New York City, the Museum of Modern Art also has a significant collection of sculptures by Constantin Brancusi, including 1928 and 1941 examples of "Bird In Space." Here's a link to MoMA's website for the 1928 bronze "Bird In Space" by Brancusi. http://www.moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?object_id=81033 And here's the link to the 1941 bronze "Bird In Space" by Brancusi. http://www.moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?object_id=81503 I'm not including the photos here today, so you'll have to click on the links and go to MoMA's website.
That's the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's Unique Artistic Idea, his Hyper Representational 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at http://www.3dssc.com/. Artist Jay Rolfe uses vibrant color, 3-D, recognizable shape, and huge size to reveal beauty, touch emotion in a positive way, and create an Uplifting Conversation Piece.
